Dov Gutterman, 25 December 1999

Image shows purple hoist with yellow over red. Based upon size, it appears to follow the 2:3 pattern of the Panamanian national flag.  Representation: fair.
Phil Nelson, 25 December 1999

Arnulfist Party: flag formed by a vertical band at the hoist, in blue, and two horizontal stripes at the fly, yellow (the upper) and red (the lower).  
The Arnulfist Party takes its name from the conservative politician Arnulfo Arias, and it is considered close to the American positions, and to conservative politics.

Nationalist Party


by Ivan Sache, 6 August 1999

Nationalist Party - Vertical red-white-blue with a white "mirrored" 3 in red stripe, a red P in white stripe and a white N in blue stripe. "By the coup of 11 October 1968, colonel Omar Torrijos, head of tha national guard, overthrew the president Arnulfo Arias, which had been elected a few days before." [eun]
At the date of parution of Smith's book, Panama was under the rule of a unique party, and I guess this was the Nationalist Party.
Source is Smith (1975), pp. 340-341 ("Symbols in politics"). Smith says that these are real flags and not only party emblems, which may differ in colours when used as emblem or in a flag.
Description of the party, comes from Encyclopaedia Universalis CD-ROM (1998)
Ivan Sache, 6 August 1999

The 3PN stands for "Tercer Partido Nacionalista" (3rd Nationalist Party) - one of the government coalition parties that lost the 1968 elections won by the Panamenista party.  11 days after the Panamenista president was inaugurated, Torrijos overthrew him.
At the time of Smith´s book (1975) all political parties including the 3PN were banned by Torrijos and no unique official party existed.  Torrijos formed the PRD party in 1979 also allowing all other parties.
The 3PN joined the Republican and one of the Liberal parties to form the opposition MOLIRENA

PRD - Partido Revolucionario Democrático


by Jaume Ollé, 27 March 2005


by Jaume Ollé, 27 March 2005

Party of the Democratic Revolution (of Ernesto Perez Balladares): flag of three horizontal stripes, the upper red, the central white, and the lower dark blue. In the center a two-colored disk, red over dark blue, with a white border al around the disk. Within the red-blue colors is the number 11 in white. In the red upper band is written in white the word REVOLUCIÓN. In the lower blue band the word DEMOCRATICA.   The Party of the Democratic Revolution stemmed from the nationalist and progressive options adopted by General Torrijos, who obtained the retrocession of the Channel Zone, administered by the United States, to Panama. It has directed the political life in the last years, with exception of the lapse of the American invasion and the establishment of a government favorable to the interests of the United States   Supposed variant of the same Party flag observed in television images: Flag of four horizontal stripes, the upper red, the following dark blue, the third white and the lower dark blue. It also contains the words REVOLUCIÓN (written in white in the upper band) and DEMOCRATICA (written in white in the lower band).

Solidaridad


by António Martins, 23 March 2000


1:2 version by Ivan Sache, 26 December 1999

These four hands supposedly stand for inter-racial solidarity and fellowship, OK. But who's who? Brown should be for anfrican panamians, thats clear. But what about the others?
António Martins, 23 March 2000

I suspect that the hands stand for (by generally accepted continent of origin)
White - Europeans
Red - Americans
Yellow - Asians
Black - Africans

It is reminiscent of lyrics from the children's song:

"Red and Yellow Black and White,
They are precious in His site,
Jesus loves the little children
of the world"
Nathan Bliss, 24 March 2000

Just a guess, but may I suggest brown for African, yellow for Asian (Chinese), rose (red) for Native Indian, and white for European?
Joe McMillan, 25 March 2000


Vanguardia Moral de la Patria

According to a morning's newspaper in Panama, one of their Political Parties has a new flag. The flag is Yellow, White and Blue, in horizontal form, and the name of the party is Vanguardia Moral de la Patria (meaning: at the Front of the Fatherland's Moral Values).
